Taiwan takes on underground radio

Government campaign aims to eliminate advertising for fake and harmful drugs.

    Taiwan's government says it is making big gains against criminal operators of underground radio stations.

    So widespread is the problem and so good the marketing that the government has made the issue a top public-health priority.
